about this book

Energy has a significant impact on the global economy. Often the underlying cause of tension between nations as they seek to ensure security of supply, energy demand has also prompted cutting-edge innovation in clean technologies to meet environmental and cost objectives. This Handbook offers a comprehensive review of the economics of energy. Including contributions from a distinguished array of international specialists, it provides a thorough discussion of the major research issues in this topical field of economics. Themes addressed include the theory of energy supply, demand and policy, empirical modeling of energy demand, holistic energy models, an analysis of coal, gas, electricity, oil and the 'markets' within which they operate, and a discussion of the current key energy policy issues. The topics of pricing, transmission, regulation, security, energy efficiency, new technologies and climate change are also discussed. "The International Handbook on the Economics of Energy" presents a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art research making it an indispensable reference for researchers, advanced students, practitioners and policy-makers alike.
